Psalm 121

From Scottish Metrical Psalms 1650

Meter: 8,6,8,6

1    I to the hills will lift mine eyes,
       from whence doth come mine aid.
2    My safety cometh from the Lord,
       who heav'n and earth hath made.
3    Thy foot he'll not let slide, nor will
       he slumber that thee keeps.
4    Behold, he that keeps Israel,
       he slumbers not, nor sleeps.

5    The Lord thee keeps, the Lord thy shade
       on thy right hand doth stay:
6    The moon by night thee shall not smite,
       nor yet the sun by day.
7    The Lord shall keep thy soul; he shall
       preserve thee from all ill.
8    Henceforth thy going out and in
       God keep for ever will.
